-Member 1: 'It's Sunday; why are you here instead of at church?'

-Member 2 (gesturing at the courts): 'This is my church.'

"And ne'er throughout the year to church thou go'st
Except it be to pray against thy foes."

King Henry VI, Part i
Act 1, Scene 1





Clinics? Yes, we have clinics. The club is looking forward to many and varied clinics this year. Right now, the clinics are scheduled for Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, from 10:00 a.m. to noon. Improve your game. Have some fun. Try a clinic.

And Kids' Clinics? Yess, we have clinics for kids. The clinics start this Sunday, May 13. There are two groups, one from 5-6 p.m., and the other from 6-7 p.m. Let your kids frolic on the courts.

We have a new communiqué from the club's president, Phil Crutchfield. Please give it read.

The club book is in process. Much of the information in last year's book is still available on the website.

Some useful links:

Here's a link to the espn site, with pro ranking.

And a club member (let's call him Sol) suggested a link to the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, R.I. The site is rich.

We still have the tournament draws (from 2001 to 2004) available on-line (including all of the results), thanks to the Java Kid. We are re-locating the links, however.



"On the court, tennis players exchange not only ground strokes but lots of information. It's a richly interactive sport, both verbally and non-verbally. If players communicate clearly, simply, and consistently, the game will proceed more quickly, and with less fuss and misunderstanding. Here are a few guidelines that can make the game more fun, friendly, and fair for all...."

We've had some requests to run Craig Lambert's piece, sampled above, on Tennis Communication. (We'd better leave this link up on the newspage permanently.)



Take a look

at what was happening at this time last year. (Don't look. We were open.)

Website Note II: The honey-comb icon is also a link. It takes the clicker to an archive of all the past news pages so that said clicker can read the news pages for the whole year (2006). The less-than link (<) next to the honeycomb icon will take clickers to the previous issue of this year's newspage. (Skywriter is for Initiates.)
